After suffering defeat in the AITEO Cup final on Wednesday to Enugu Rangers at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, four-time NPFL champions Kano Pillars are weighing up the option of bringing in a new head coach, thepredictorn.com can report.

Club officials dropped the hint on Friday that stakeholders at the Kano outfit are unimpressed with how the team blew a three-goal lead in the final 20 minutes against Rangers before succumbing through penalty shooutout.

Thepredictorng.com was also informed that the performance of the club in last season’s botched NPFL has come under review and the team’s lack of spine on the road in 12 away matches remains unimpressive as they failed to win a single game.

The development now means that Ibrahim Musa could be made to stand down from his role as head coach of Kano Pillars in the coming days.


However who could be the possible candidates for the head coach role at Kano Pillars. It is understood that a choice is yet to be made by the club hierarchy until a final decision is taken on Musa’s future.

But four candidates are already in line for the role. They include Usman Abdallah, Imama Amapakabo, Kennedy Boboye and Ladan Bosso.

Abdallah is currently in the books of rivals Enyimba and his contract will run out at the end of this season as thepredictorng.com understands that the People’s Elephant only sees the France-trained coach as a “stop-gap measure” after Paul Aigbogun left his role unceremoniously.

Abdallah led Enyimba to a semi-final finish in the CAF Confederation Cup and fourth place in the NPFL.

The trio of Amapakabo, Boboye and Bosso are at the moment unattached after leaving their roles at El-Kanemi Warriors, Plateau United and FC Ifeanyiubah respectively.

Boboye guided Plateau United to the league title in 2017.
